It's rather surprising that Phoenician letters are occasionally used to
write Hebrew to this day, even though (almost) no one is able to read
them. See http://www.bankisrael.gov.il/catal/c39.gif and
http://www.bankisrael.gov.il/catal/c41.gif for some examples from modern
coins. These are of course based on ancient coins, but I can provide at
least one other example from an office building near my house.
